Old Blue Prairie Sewing Roll

SOLD! This is such an early looking piece- just like it was made by a pioneer woman on the prairie.
The overall dimensions are 13" high x 7" wide-the main stitched piece is 10" x 4 1/2 " wide.
it is stitched on a piece of tattered old linen wit a bird and rabbits at the top and row of blue and tan quilt motifs on the left side. The scrap of linen band at the top says with my needle- it is dated 1827, The entire piece is heavily coffee dyed and baked to prim perfection. There is a layer of batting between the front and back so it will hold many needles and pins and many skiens of floos can be rolled up inside. The cream colored ribbon closure has been coffe dued also and could be replaced with coffee dyed kitchen string.
The piece is functional as a sewing roll but can also be a hanging sampler or it also looks great laying in an olde trencher. ( The blue fabric is a medium blue and not quire as dark as shown)28.00 plus 3.00 shipping
